Dior Blue Beat (327) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Blue Beat (327) Dior Blue Beat (327) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition spring color story that features a very pale, warm pink, brighter pink, and three cooler-toned shades from light blue to blue-teal. Unfortunately, only the fifth shade in the palette was decent, but decent in the scheme of things is pretty weak these days based on the glut of great eyeshadow that exists at all price points.

Dior Pink Vibration (167) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Pink Vibration (167) Dior Pink Vibration (167) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition spring color story featuring yellow, orange, and three takes on purple from lavender to plum. They were all… varying degrees of disappointment, and they were some of the worst eyeshadows I’ve tried in the last few months. I feel like a lot of issues that I encounter are powderiness, so some fallout or having to build up…

Dior Rosy Vibes (001) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Rosy Vibes (001) Dior Rosy Vibes (001) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer ($50.00 for 0.21 oz.) has a soft, peachy-pink base paired with flecks of gold and lavender shimmer and micro-sparkle that gave it a luminous finish with a subtle twinkle. The base seemed more translucent, so it had more medium, buildable coverage with a more noticeable sheen. It had a smooth, more firmly-pressed texture, which I find to be a signature of the baked gelee-style powder (firmer, denser but melts on…

Dior Coral Vibes (002) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Coral Vibes (002) Dior Coral Vibes (001) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer ($50.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink base with warmer, peachy-gold shimmer throughout that gave it a luminous sheen. While some highlighters with this color look more gold than pink, this looked mostly pink with a hint of golden sheen at certain angles. The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly pressed (so no powderiness) but yielded to a moderately-dense brush as this hybrid baked-gelee formula tends…

Dior Charm & Delight Diorific Happy 2020 Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Charm (068) Dior Charm (068) Diorific Happy 2020 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and fine pink and gold pearl. It looked more shimmery in the tube than it did applied; the creamier base seemed to cover the bits of pearl for the most part. The texture was lightly creamy, thin without being clingy, and applied without tugging or dragging on my lips. Unfortunately, it was prone to catching on minor imperfections…

Dior Universal (001) Face & Body Glow Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Universal (001) Dior Universal (001) Backstage Face & Body Glow ($38.00 for 1.6 oz.) is a light, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and fine pearl that gave it a soft, luminous finish. It’s a thin, watery-gel of a liquid highlighter that can be used alone, all-over, and/or mixed with foundation, so the subtly of it on its own was as marketed. It produced a soft, glowing finish with a touch of sheen but wasn’t overly wet and dried down…

Dior Celebrate in Gold (017) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Celebrate in Gold (017) Dior Celebrate in Gold (017) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette that features two golds, a soft golde-taupe, satiny brown, and rich black. Two of the five shades had lower-level shimmer, so the color story offered more contrast and versatility than some of the other Dior quints have in the past. All five shades performed well; they were pigmented, easy to apply and blend…

Four of the five shades had excellent pigmentation, while one was more medium and buildable in coverage. The texture felt more of the gel-powder hybrids, so they seemed like they could easily be used with a dampened brush…

Dior Independent (823) Rouge Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Independent (823) Dior Indpendent (823) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a drier, more powdery texture that had some excess that kicked up in the pan. I’d recommend tapping off excess to ensure precision during application. I applied this more as a contour powder in order to avoid unnecessary comments about it looking “bruised,” due to the way this type of hue interacts…

Dior Confident (783) Rouge Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Confident (783) Dior Confident (783) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It had barely-there, very fine pearl throughout, but it wasn’t visibly shimmery–just more of a semi-matte to satin finish that looked skin-like once buffed and blended out on my skin. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be used with a lighter hand for a more buildable application (which I’d recommend–deeper shades like…

Dior Amber Neutrals Backstage Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Amber Neutrals Dior Amber Neutrals Backstage Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.35 oz.) contains richer, more red-toned neutrals with a mix of mattes and soft shimmers. It’s an improvement from the previous Backstage palettes, though it’s not a palette I’d splash out nearly $50 for given the plethora of higher-performing neutral palettes on the market. The mattes in the palette performed well, while the shimmers were lackluster, drier, and had lots of room for improvement. Dior Primer Primer Backstage Eyeshadow Primer…

Smoky Canvas (053) Dior Smoky Canvas (053) 3 Couleurs Tri(o)blique ($63.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio that features a shimmery gray, bright silver, and deep black. The three shades coordinated well together to create a monochromatic, gray smoky eye. It performed well, though they’re classic and common enough shades that you’ll definitely want to check your stash for similar shades first!

Earthy Canvas (553) Dior Earthy Canvas (555) 3 Couleurs Tri(o)blique ($63.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio that features two, shimmery golds and one pearly brown. There was enough differentiation in depth, undertone, and finish between the two golds that they didn’t feel totally redundant, though I think a richer, deeper gold might have worked in place of #1 for more versatility. The first two shades were decent but needed primer and/or wet brush for better application,…

The three shades coordinated well together and offered enough tonal and depth contrast. All three shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, were blendable and easy to work with, and lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

The three shades were workable together, but I felt like the first and second shade could have been differentiated better. All three shades had good pigmentation, were blendable, and lasted between seven and eight hours over bare skin. Dior Rosy Canvas #1 Tri(o)blique Eyeshadow Dior Rosy Canvas #1…
